Windows 7: Damn Bing crap!!!

Damn Bing crap!!!

I had to reinstall Win& as a result of a virus i couldn't get rid of, and also updated to Windows 7 Pro.

After reinstalling MSN Explorer I can't logon to the internet without a damn Bing page being shoved down my throat.

How do I get rid of it?

I have never downloaded bing, nor do I have a Bing tool bar.

I've looked at my installed programs, no Bing there either, so nothing to uninstall via my control panel.

If I understand what you're saying, Bing is now your default search engine, and it is your home page. You can change the home page to anything you want. Just get your favorite page up on the internet, go to tools if you're using IE on the General page and click "use current page". From then on that page will open when you go on line.

No, it's not my default search engine nor my home page.

It's a fawkin' pop-up that show's up every time I try yo get logged onto the internet.
Click on my little Butterflu icon, select the user (me, out of 4 possible users)...POP-UP. The whole damn screen is damn bing ad.

Can ya tell I'm really starting to get pissed about this?

I finally ditched msn premium a few years ago. Best thing I ever did -well almost. lol.
Why pay 9.95 month when MS Live has all that stuff and much better for free. Dumb clueless MSN rep tried to get me to keep it for only 6.95 a month or something..yeah riiiight. As soon as I figured out that one retains the @msn.com email address it was bye bye to premium.

Yeah I agree Bing anything reeks. ESPECIALLY its search and maps.

Uninstall it and use Internet Explorer 9 with built-in combination URL/Google search bar and your choice of Home page.

It's nearly flawless except it won't let me drag 250 7Forums bookmarks into my posts here so I use Firefox for only that reason.
